Any White Bass Reports?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been out lately? I have a few questions:

Is there any significant current or is the river backed up?

Are there any stripers/hybrids up yet?

What's the water temp?

Anyone thrown a black spinnerbait at night for stripers?

I've caught stripers by accident night fishing for bass, so I anticipate I'll be slow rolling on the White. In the past, I've intentionally fished for stripers on Texoma with a slow retrieve. We weren't quite slow rolling, but we were letting 1oz white spinnerbaits with trailers fall quite a ways. I imagine I'll try deep steady retrieves and bumping the bottom.

I have caught stripers at night with rattle traps, and top water baits ( spooks and redfins), but could see how a spinner bait would work. You talk about fishing Texoma, me and a couple buddies will be going down there April 13th do you have any suggestions.

Texoma stripers will probably be post spawn by then. If they are the best spring and early summer tip I can give is follow the gulls. If they haven't spawned by then (I haven't been following southern Oklahoma weather) go up the major creek arms with current. I used to fish the Platter Flats area and can't tell you much about the far upper end of the lake.

BTW Texoma has become an excellent smallmouth factory.

Good luck.

I was off all last week fishing for Whites about 4 or 5 miles above the twin bridges in Goshen. I caught about 160 in 4 days I caught about 70 on Thursday before the cold rainy weather moved in. I was catching them on crappie Jigs under a rattle bobber and on rainbow Sassy shads fished on a 1/8th oz. jig head. Here is a pic of some of my success.

Booger:

You must have been close to Wyman. Were you able to motor up the whole way? I bet you didn't see to many folks up that far, but with this water you may have.

How is the current? I'm anxious to get a report after last night's rain. I'd like to solo it one night myself in my newly patched bass buddy, but I'm not interested in fighting current all night. I'm equally disinterested in swimming in the dark, so i hope my patch job does the trick.

I haven't been out since Thursday I am sure the water is up a bit and there is some current. If I were in a bass buggy I would go up the richland creek tp the shoal above the bridge!
